Do you feel wasted? -- Get It Out! Passing a kidney stone is considered one of the most painful experiences the human body can endure. Diverticulitis causes a stabbing pain in the belly, and can lead to internal bleeding, infection and death. Prostate enlargement can torment a man day and night, just as menopausal hot flashes, sweats and imbalances can destroy a woman's quality of life. Cervical dysplasia and yeast infections plague young women, who must now also fear cervical cancer. And the medical industry says they don't know the cause of any of these conditions, but they can schedule you for regular check-ups, sell you drugs, and perform surgery when needed. Millions of people suffer from one or more of these problems. Get It Out! explores this wasteland of disease, explaining in clear, concise language how the body works, and how our private lifestyles can get in the way of its proper functioning. Singer and Grismaijer, the husband-and-wife medical anthropologist team internationally acclaimed for their revolutionary book, Dressed To Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras (Avery, NY 1995), hold nothing back in this insightful, entertaining, and unique book that explains how our cultural taboos and secrets can be our downfall. Get It Out! is your answer to feeling rejuvenated, refreshed, and revitalized. At last, you can prevent and cure the diseases that plague our culture. You need never feel wasted again.
